Gunmen attack Israel bus station, one shot dead: police

18 October 2015, 18:58

Jerusalem - Two suspected Palestinian gunmen opened fire on people at the main bus station in the southern Israeli city of Beersheba on Sunday, before one was shot dead, police said.

"One terrorist was shot dead," police said in a statement. A police spokesperson said a second gunman had taken part in the attack and was moderately wounded by Israeli forces.

One of the gunmen had a rifle and the other was armed with a pistol, police said.

Medical officials said six people were rushed to hospital, two of them in serious condition, two moderate, and two lightly wounded.

The shooting was the latest in a series of attacks by Palestinians targeting civilians and security forces in Israel and the West Bank in a wave of violence and unrest raising fears of a full-scale Palestinian uprising.

Including alleged assailants, 42 Palestinians have been killed since an upsurge in violence began on October 1, while seven Israelis have lost their lives.
